1. Ensure your line of sight is straight ahead when working at your monitor. It can be slightly downward but ensure the angle your head is at isn't too low.

2. Tilt your screen so it's angled upwards. This will help reduce reflections which is one of the causes of eye fatigue in those who use monitors regularly. 

3. Try to position yourself so your eyes are 40cm away from the screen and if you're using a wide monitor, this should be increased to 50cm.

4. Have the keyboard and mouse at a comfortable working distance so you aren't leaning towards the screen.

5. Posture is important; have your feet flat to the floor, sit up straight and push your back against the back of your chair when using the computer. 

6. If you're struggling with light reflections, fit a monitor hood to reduce the amount of light that reaches the screen. 

7. Consider using an anti-glare screen protector which can be fitted to the front of your monitor to reduce glare. 

8. Work away from windows where possible and fit blinds to reduce the amount of outside light entering the room and potentially reflecting off your screen. 

9.Reduce or increase the brightness of your screen depending on if it's too dark or light to make viewing documents and photos easier for your eyes. You can manually adjust the calibration options on EIZO monitors to do this. 

10. It's recommended that those working on monitors all day should take a 10 minute monitor break every hour. However, this doesn't mean you need to stop working. For example, you could make calls, sort documents / post, assess photo prints... whatever tasks you can complete without looking at your screen.
